New Windows apps and games
Luna is a classic Windows program that gives users more control over light and dark themes usage on Windows 10. While it is already possible to switch between light and dark themes automatically, Luna introduces new options that some users may find useful.
One of the main features of the application is the ability to change system or app themes only when Windows switches between dark and light themes.
Additionally, it is possible to change the wallpaper whenever the theme changes.
Microsoft published the Microsoft Store page of Minecraft Dungeons by accident recently but has unpublished it again after noticing the error.
It is very likely that the new Minecraft game will be released soon. It is an action adventure that resembles classic dungeon crawlers but with a strong Minecraft setting. The game can be played alone or with up to three other human players.
Players can personalize their characters, unlock new weapons and equipment, fight monsters in hand-to-hand combat, with ranged weapons or magic.
